This is my second trip to the Playa Del Carmen area and by far the best. Yes people complain and moan about the seaweed on the beach, but it's nature there is nothing you can do about it. and if you walk 300 yards up the beach there is an amazing spot that is sheltered by sea walls and the soft sand goes well out into the ocean.
The rooms were very nice and the staff was out early every morning making sure the hotel was spotless.
The food was excellent for the most part. The buffet was well stocked but the desserts were only decent. Not being a huge dessert person that didn't really bother me any.
Tao was only OK. The entertainment of it was excellent but the food was just simple steak/chicken/shrimp etc. You go there for the show, not for the food.
Aroma was absolutely incredible, as was the Rodeo grill and Bruschetta. You can also book to go to the sister resorts but although you pay more money for the Platinum side you are treated like second class citizens over there.
It was an amazing week and we will be going back next winter!More
